Get a signed copy of The Hate U Give to give away for your next library book club

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas has won countless major literary awards, sat atop the New York Times bestseller list for over a year and is becoming a movie in October. The novel touches on poignant topics including gun violence, classism, racial bias, drugs, police brutality and much more. The conversations that The Hate U Give have sparked since its release makes it an exceptional book club selection.

Thanks to our publisher partners at Balzer + Bray and HarperCollins, we have 10 physical copies of the book signed by Thomas to give to any libraries or schools doing a The Hate U Give book club in celebration of the movie’s release. If you’re holding a book club with the title, simply reach out to your OverDrive Account Manager or comment on this blog for a chance to receive one of these signed copies. These copies are first come, first serve, so act fast! You’re welcome to use the signed copy however you see fit to help promote your library and your literacy services.

If you do host a book club with this title, be sure to connect with us about doing a digital version as well. If you’re looking for a model to follow, earlier this year, Ocean State Libraries held their own The Hate U Give Digital Book Club to great success. This format provides a perfect way for readers to partake in an important conversation even if they can’t make it physically to the library.
